The video above shows fabrication of the Hiroshima armchair in walnut at the Maruni factory in Japan.

It's now available with the clear finish, which enhances the distinctive, beautiful wood grain of walnut and highlights the elegant style, giving the chair richness. Selected for Apple's new headquarters in Cupertino, California, the chairs feature simple, subtle structures that highlight the natural wood used, and which have no restrictions placed on them regarding places in which they are used.

Made also in either beech or oak, the tapering of the sides of the arms, the gentle curve of the back along the arm, and a roomy seat allow the chairs to be used for more than dining.
